$20,000 Cash + $14,000 Equity on First Deal

We made our first real estate investment about six months ago. We bought a two-family foreclosure for $5,000. It was a mess: holes in the wall, broken windows, the gas lines running to the house had been cut–you name it. My husband put a few weeks’ work and about $6,000 in it. We now have a fully rented home for $425 per unit!

We just refinanced and got $20,000 out to reinvest. It appraised at $45,000! And we still have a great monthly income with the conservative 30% vacancy and repair rate I factored in. We are currently looking for another “fixer-upper” two-family in a low income, but decent neighborhood. Our goal is to own 20 of these and have them all paid for in 10 to 15 years.
